Submitting Presentation Proposals for Library 2.022: Urban Librarianship: Embracing Challenges and Opportunities through Innovation, Leadership, and Best Practices
We encourage proposals that showcase urban libraries and librarians supporting the resiliency of their local communities and delivering vital services to help individuals live their best lives; and/or that show how urban libraries have a unique impact on the well-being of their communities and positively transform those communities and people as anchor institutions and community hubs, and as partners with local government, private sector, nonprofits, and other community-based organizations for collective impact.
The Call for Proposals Is Now OPEN
Proposals will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis starting April 21st, 2022, and closing at the latest on June 30th. The number of sessions will be limited to 18 and the call for proposals will close when we have accepted that number of sessions, so you are encouraged to get your proposal in early! If your proposal is accepted, you will be provided with the ability to schedule a presentation time that is convenient to your time zone and work schedule. Early proposal submission and acceptance will give you the most flexibility for scheduling your presentation.
Your presentation proposal, once submitted, will be listed on the Library 2.0 website, with the opportunity for members of this network to view, comment on, and/or "like" your presentation proposal. This will give you and the other members of this site the chance to share ideas and to make connections before, during, and after the conference. Additionally, it will allow us to gauge the popularity of your topic or approach. It is our intention that all serious proposals be given the opportunity to be presented.
Sessions slots are 30 minutes long, and the suggested presentation time is 20 minutes, with 5 minutes of Q&A, and then 5 minutes for attendees to switch session rooms to attend the next session. Please plan on not exceeding 25 minutes total presentation including Q&A time.
Presentations will be scheduled between 1:00 - 2:30 pm Pacific Time on July 14th.
All presentations will be recorded and released under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivs License. For more information, please visit: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/3.0/). By submitting to present, you are agreeing to these terms.
